What readers are saying about Unexpected Obsession:
“Strickland pulls off what some writers don’t. She writes a steamy love scene, but all the emotions and love her characters feel are also present. She combines both aspects perfectly.”
Passionate desire will overrule propriety and common sense under the influence of a golden Sicilian sun and Mediterranean waters. For Nico, self-contained and disciplined, his attraction to Lia will destroy the carefully constructed rules of a lifetime. His inner beast doesn’t care; it wants Lia and it will do whatever it needs to ensure she is his.
“Every human is intended to have a character of his own; to be what no others are, and to do what no other can do.”
– William Ellery Channing, 1780-1884
A late comer to the writing scene, Barbara explores different genres from contemporary romance, children’s books, paranormal worlds, and does a little delving into science-fiction and some poetry. Having lived just outside Venice (Carnevale ), it seemed appropriate to let the masks represent the different worlds she would like to inhabit or at least write about.
Currently she is busy writing about her experiences as a budding writer and life in general in the Amorina Rose blog. On days ending in ‘y’ she is found hard at work on The Unexpected series (five in all) and writing poetry books, and working on ideas for a thriller and a science fiction novel. She does wonder why it has taken her so long to do something she loves.
